Visit the New Project Studio from April 17-May 1 for a special two-week exhibition of works created by high school art students during their mentorship with professional artists from the Torpedo Factory Art Center.
The Friends of the Torpedo Factory Mentorship Program gives a selection of high school art students the opportunity to be mentored by a professional Torpedo Factory artist. The mentors answer the students’ questions on all that is involved in being a professional artist: education, finding and maintaining a studio, and marketing your artwork. They also give advice and consultation on the students’ artwork. At the end of the program, there is an exhibit of the students’ artwork in the Torpedo Factory and a reception.
This unique experience can help a student decide if they want to go on to study art in college and pursue a career in art, and provide a valuable addition to their college application.
Sunday, April 23
Parents, teachers, and art enthusiasts are encouraged to stop by the New Project Studio for refreshments and talks with mentors and students.
